In 1936, a Nazi soldier was among the German presence stationed outside Cairo, Egypt at Tanis under Colonel Herman Dietrich and French archaeologist René Emile Belloq to search for the lost Ark of the Covenant.
One afternoon, the soldier sat with his associates at a lunch table on the digsite. When he noticed two of the native workers walking past, he stood up and demanded water from the closest one who was actually American archaeologist Indiana Jones in disguise. After another Nazi sat at the table began yelling for the same, Sallah, the other worker and Jones' friend, quickly intervened allowing Jones to slip away.
Behind the scenes Edit
The thirsty Nazi was portrayed by an uncredited performer in Raiders of the Lost Ark, despite having a speaking role.
